A Moment I Had Longed To See

The charging bull elephant stampeded into the murky water, thrusting his long trunk high into the air.

The sound of splashing ringed in my ears. Blackened water erupted, upsetting the surface and its rival wake, each heaving step pounded in an effortless hustle.

My vision was drawn to the elephant’s emotive eye, its hazy reflection stared back at me, filling my finder.

I watched the backlight silhouette his age showing nothing but moving muscle and wrinkled hide.

His victory song could be heard for miles, the loud trumpeting signifying for his young family to follow.

Witnessing this experience was surely the heart of Africa. A moment I had longed to see.

I really didn’t want to get any closer than this. This guy was huge!

Until Next Time – Happy Shooting

Painting Photoshop Style

Decided I would have some fun painting after a long night of editing weddings.
Here is the result. What do you think? Did I go too far?

Impala – The rest of the herd

With these images I wanted to get really close rather than show a whole herd of Impala. Sort of like animal portraits.

Let me know your thoughts of these 5 images. Which one do you like the most?

Until next time….

Happy Shooting!




Here is the start of some more wildlife images from Africa.

You should see a herd of Impala developing on the blog (Saturday)….I have so many shots!
